Conjoined twins sharing heart, liver to be operated on soon – Dr. Chilufya

Written by on April 25, 2019

Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya says the procedure to separate the co-joined twins from Kabwe will be conducted soon.

Last month, a Kabwe woman delivered a set of conjoined twins at the University Teaching Hospital, sharing a heart and liver.

Dr Chilufya says doctors at UTH have finished evaluating the nature of the joint on the twins.

Dr Chilufya says the twins are making steady progress and the hospital is preparing them for the separation procedure.

He says doctors are already planning on how the procedure will be done before the actual day of the operation.
